Future Proofing the Plan Making Process

In Feb 2022 we ran 4 sessions on ‘Future Proofing the Local Plan making Process’. Plan makers discussed what it’s like ‘carrying on planning’ at the moment, what's unlikely to change when planning reform comes, and the implications of stopping, pausing or shelving local plans. We also discussed those things that make for a smoother examination process. Below is a recording of the presentations and a summary of the discussion topics. The summaries contain a few top tips and capture some of the key things on front-line planners' minds at the moment.
